UPDATED: FEB 15, 2007 On tap at 102 Cocktail Bar.

Malty and sweet, pretty grainy aroma. In opposite to the bottled version, this has no wheat-like flavor. The hops are quite obvious, but the alcohol is subdued; again compared to the bottled version. Strong for an abbey tripel - usually they are much milder, with more subdued alcohol, and less fruityness, but more sweetness. Spicy and hopped aftertaste with some alcohol. Nice beer, but i prefer other abbey tripels.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2006
A Mes rate: 33cl bottle from Waitrose. Yeasty orange tinged nose with spicy notes. The aroma is actually the best thing by far with this one. Great looking peachy orange, almost amber, cloudy body. Would have been a 4 if it wasn’t for the very poor behaviour of the head. Very spritzy mouthfeel which takes the edge off it a little. Flavour is reasonable. Standard tripel fayre really. Slightly citric, more spice and a nice creamy vanilla kick from the alcohol. Finish is initially very dry with further gentle vanilla alcohol. Eventually ending up a little sticky and acrid. Not a bad tripel, I just can’t get excited about it.

0,7l Bottle: Hazy yellow colour, with a nice white foam. Aroma of fruity,yeasty, and a bit citric nose. Palate is almost the same,light to medium body,short to medium finish. Nice tripple!

FezMonkey (268) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 8, 2006
Hazy dark yellow colour with big foamy head, lacing. Typical, sweet and corky aroma. Malty flavours and hints of cloves and other spices. Alcohol is not well hidden as others. Fairly dry with slight bitterness

fonefan (42524) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2006
Bottle. Nice blond body with lasting white foamy/creamy head. Fresh and well balanced hoppy aroma with honeyish, flowery, and yeasty notes. Taste hides the alcohol very well. It carries sweet and honeyish hints. Ends with a smooth bittersweet finish. Good Tripel. Very good together with chees
